I just downloaded from the manjaro.org website the latest xfce version of manjaro, and I noticed it comes with kernel 5.8.
Does this kernel being EOL, has any problems with the installing the tools and drivers required to use the nvidia-prime functionalities + using a second monitor with both the screens functioning as 2 different desktop areas ?
If not, what kernel should I use.
(Reminder, I’m not an Linux advanced user, I know how to edit files and change the chmod but I’m not experienced on linux, especially manjaro, so take easy on me guys )
I read and understand that is the way to change the kernel, but let me rephrase my need. After what I gathered of information, I wanto know If I should wait until the manjaro team releases a manjaro version with the 5.10 LTS Kernel or Should I just install the OS with the current Kernel (5.8) and continue keeping the system up-to-date so when the 5.10 kernel becomes LTS I just change to it ?
Nothing, absolutely nothing. To run aplications with Nvidia support, you should edit the menu options and put in command line ‘prime-run’(prime-run /usr/bin/vmware %U). When you launch the application(Game or VMware for example) they will run with Nvidia graphics support. It’s easy. I can play ‘The Witcher 3’ and anothers games easy.
